About this title


In this coming-of-age story, Sam Grace, on vacation from prep school, is held hostage by the manager of a supermarket, nearly killed by a young couple he has befriended, and rejected by a beautiful former classmate

From School Library Journal:

YA Once YAs have made it through the first two long and digressive chapters, they'll identify with disillusioned Sam Grace, who does not have it all together, and to whom all things are importantelevator inspectors, for instance. Rich-kid Sam is asked to leave his prep school and so launches upon a series of adventures in California, New York, and Cape Cod. He finds little to like or to admire in the places he goes or in the strange and not-so-strange characters he meets, but he tries. His efforts are occasionally moving and often funny. Some of Smith's characters are overdrawn; they are too much alike, particularly in dialogue. Sam's occasional destructiveness is disturbing, although in character. In this first novel, Smith presents a Holden Caulfield-like character study with no explanations or resolution. His touch for replicating adolescent thinking in a humorous and generally sympathetic way is what makes this book worth reading. Sally Bates, Houston Public Library
